Since 1896. With its roots in Dedemsvaart, Peters Shipyards started as a building and repairs shipyard for inland navigation. Following steady growth, the shipyard moved to its present site in Kampen in the nineteen-sixties. More than 10 years ago, based on its experience with inland navigation, the company started producing sea-going ships via ‘short sea shipping’. Nowadays, Peters Shipyards focuses completely on building new ships.
